Features of our services include:...
We offer Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 development, as well as Drupal core custom module development and we’re overseeing a roadmap for Drupal 9.
Multisite and Multilingual
We’re also well versed in multisite installations and multilingual development in both Drupal 7 and 8.
Integrations and Migrations
We have extensive experience of third party systems integrations with Drupal. This includes ticketing systems such as Spektrix and Tessitura but also eSRO4, Vista, PatronBase and Monad (and we even have an Eventbrite module) as well as CRM, DAM and collection management systems (for example Salesforce, Alfresco and SSL respectively). We oversee content and data migration projects and we’re already planning in EoL (end-of-life) migrations and upgrades for Drupal 7 and 8 to Drupal 9.
We always look to keep the user experience front and centre, and this is no different with our Drupal work. Part of this is helping clients to create engaging, user focused Drupal websites that look good and perform well on any device, i.e. responsive theme development.
Frequently Asked Questions
What versions of Drupal are there?
Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 are the most popular versions. Drupal 8 is integrated with Symfony framework, which offers heightened code security, an in-built ‘translation’ component to support multiple languages, and routing capabilities to support better ranking website in search. Drupal 8 also offers much improved backward compatibility. Drupal 9 is coming soon too with a release date of June 2020. We’re already planning for Drupal 7 and 8 EoL (end-of-life), due for November 2021.
Who uses Drupal?
Drupal is used by household brands and national and international organisations the world over, such as Tesla, the Australian Government, Royal Mail, Puma, Pfizer, the Grammys, The Emmy Awards, Le Figaro, The Economist, NBC, Visit Fuji and Lady Gaga. It has an excellent reputation. It is used widely throughout the arts cultural, heritage, NfP, local and national government sectors (BFI, British Council, Data.Gov.Uk, Barbican, Brighton & Hove Council, Burnley Council, Croydon Council, Imperial War Museums, Live Nation, London Assembly, Lush Cosmetics, National Galleries Scotland, National Theatre, Ofsted, Science Museums, Tate, The Louvre, The Economist). Drupal is also widely used in Higher Education. Seven out of the world's top 10, most prestigious universities and 70% of the top 100 universities worldwide choose Drupal, including Oxford University, Cambridge University, UCL and Harvard (in fact all eight Ivy League schools use Drupal).
How secure is Drupal?
Drupal is a proven, secure CMS and application framework that stands up to the most critical internet vulnerabilities in the world. Drupal is mature, stable and designed with robust security in mind, from the ground up. Organisations around the world - including leading corporations, brands, and governments - rely on Drupal for mission-critical websites and applications, testing its security against the most stringent standards. A dedicated security team, along with a large professional service provider ecosystem, and one of the largest developer communities in the world ensure rapid response to issues. Many security problems are prevented entirely by Drupal’s strong coding standards and rigorous community code review process. No other open source CMS has such a robust approach. The result is that while WordPress accounts for the majority of security breaches, Drupal does not.
Does Drupal support responsive design?
Yes. Drupal supports responsive and mobile first designs out-of-the-box. It also supports delivery of fully responsive content assets (images, tables etc) and to support content editors and site owners who might need to manage the site via a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), we ensure the editorial and admin UI is fully responsive too.
